My First Show
Wow. This just blew my mind... first time I think I've heard this show since that night! Never forget leaning against the stage, (it was not like at later Dead shows, you could actually just walk up and lean against the stage), during I Know You Rider. "I wish I was a headlight..." I was 14 and that night changed my life.
I ended up working with The Dead folks post-Jerry, and my pics were even the ones on the Rex Black Tie Dye Ball CD! From hearing Let Me Sing Your Blues Away first on this night in 1973, to having Donna sing it me in a rehearsal studio in NYC, back in 2006, the week my mom passed... what a long strange trip it certainly has been!

Actually a pretty sloppy show. Eyes, China Doll & China Rider are excellent, but they are the exceptions. Recording needs high end cut.

unique to itself
This show grows on me. It is unique to itself. Good Me + My Uncle, Sugaree and the second set is solid. It is bumpy in the first set, but don't be deterred initially like I was.

review was painful
The 9/7 show featured extraordinary versions of TLEO,Bird Song,Here Comes Sunshine,Me and My Uncle,Stella Blue and an all-time Playin' in the Band.
As for 9/8 the standout's are Tennessee Jed,Brown-Eyed,Eyes,Greatest Story,Truckin',NFA and Let It Grow.
Even a rudimentary knowledge of this music shouldn't allow for a comment so uninformed as to compare these two very good shows to some mediocre late 70's crap.

Oh My Oh My Oh My OH MY!!
Oh My GOODNESS!! What a WONDERFUL show!! Yessir! I Like it!
I never much enjoyed traipsing out to Nassau. Horrendous drive and the scene, well, so much has been written about Nassau County's nefarious Blue Meanies. Leave it at that.
As if to compensate, boys and girls, this here roasty, toasty bisquit is pure honey and delight. Just a lovely Fall show from a great year. Band is just really kickin' it and.. KEITH SINGS! Why he didn't sing more is a mystery.
Grab it and get it before it's gone kids! They'll fer sure git round to vending this tasty morsel.

This sounds a *little* better balanaced (L-R) than the other source, http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-09-08.sbd.wulf.183.sbefail.shnf
However, the 183 source claims to be SBD> master reel> cassette> Dat >HD> shn; from Honey Vine #14
This "goodbear" source states the following:
Below timings have NOT changed from my original 5/1999 DAT source after I edited/retracked it BACK THEN and put on CD/DAT... This release here is MY original edited 5/1999 tracks EXACTLY, plus the 9/29/2006 fix...
SNIP when Dick died, others started circulating it ("Honey Vine" 12/14?/1999) so I did also a few weeks later on usenet from my sourced DAT which I edited then seeded in 1999.
Cool Edit for hiss reduction on ALL and amplification on the Encores used on 9/29/2006
Encoded to SHN by: Teddy "GoodBear" & posted the 1st time (W/editing but W/O hiss reduction) to "alt.binaries.gdead" on 12/25/1999.
Encoded to FLAC 9/29/2006 W/hiss reduction on ALL and amplification on the Encores & Seeded shortly thereafter by Teddy "GoodBear" Selby
The audio, sounds good, I wish the notes were as clear.
P.S. Must be the only "Let Me Sing Your Blues Away" without Martin Fierro or Joe Ellis on horns!
